The strong forms and eye-catching colors of cannas make them perfect for planting either in small numbers as focal points or in bigger groups to create a subtropical ambience. This new book in our popular Gardener's Guide series includes a comprehensive A-Z of cannas, concentrating on the hybrid forms for which the genus is famous, but also including a selection of interesting species. Illustrated with gorgeous photographs and specially commissioned botanical drawings, this is an informative and fascinating book for both established canna growers and newcomers alike.
